New York's tallest building
Built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, One World Trade Center is now the city's tallest building. Construction workers added a beam that put the height just beyond 1,250 feet — higher than the observation deck at the Empire State Building.
